Illegal gambling website : An online payment company involved

The practice of online games like poker and sports betting in the United States is illegal. But supporters of this activity can do so on foreign websites. However, the law could not prevent operators from continuing their clandestine activities. Thus, to make their remittances in the country, operators cooperate in secret with private companies. U.S. officials describe these transactions as bank fraud and money laundering. The leader of the Australian company Intabill Daniel Tzvetkoff, was arrested for a similar case in April. Last week, authorities discovered another illegal maneuver performed by another operator of online payment.

They affirmed that Douglas Rennick agreed to carry out money transfers of players worth U.S. $ 350 million for online gambling sites operating in the United States. To do this, he used secret codes to ensure that their transactions can be accomplished easily because if banks discover the destination of this money, they would have seen to refuse the operation, because the U.S. law prohibited it. The Canadian, however pleaded guilty, he must answer for his actions. So after paying a fine of 17 million dollars, Rennick may still spend 6-12 months in prison. The court's verdict will be issued in September and it is possible that the Canadian can have a sentence relief because justice will assess the situation according to his future conduct, specifically for his cooperation during investigations.
